This enables Vodafone to connect its customers to relevant services within the Vodafone live! offering, as well as to the mobile Internet. The service is already live in Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Malta, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, with the UK scheduled for early next year.
